Signs You Have a Sewer or Drain Issue

One of the biggest issues with drain problems is the unknown. You may not realize you have a drain problem until major issues begin to occur because the small signs are often overlooked. Should you notice any of the signs below, do not hesitate to call us to avoid significant plumbing problems in your home. 

  • Do you have foul odors coming from your drains or backyard? Rotten egg odors commonly occur when there are drain problems that need to be addressed right away.  
  • Slow drains are one of the first symptoms homeowners will notice when they need sewer repairs. Unfortunately, many ignore this sign because they mistakenly think it is a minor issue. 
  • Are your drains making gurgling sounds? You may hear gurgling after flushing the toilet or when the dishwasher or washing machine is draining. Do not ignore this sign or major plumbing concerns may arise. 
  • Many homeowners do not realize the lush green patch of lawn in their backyards could be a problem. Lush grass growth means sewage leaks are occurring in the area. 
  • If you notice a low-lying area in your yard, this could be a sinkhole forming. Sinkholes can range in size and can be dangerous. They are often caused by leaking plumbing infrastructures. 

Have you noticed any of these signs? Unfortunately, sewer and drain issues are progressive. What starts out as a minor problem can escalate. Eventually, raw sewage could come seeping into your home from every drain and toilet in the residence. This is a mess you do not want to have to deal with in your home. 

What Are the Benefits of Drain Cleaning?

Every homeowner should have drain cleaning regularly. It is a good idea to seek our drain cleaning services annually. By having your drains cleaned, you will not have to worry about the signs above beginning to occur or the major messes of sewer overflows and leaks. 

  • Drain cleaning services eliminate pesky clogs in the plumbing lines. These clogs can lead to major problems in your plumbing system and should be avoided. 
  • When drains begin backing up with stuck-on food, hair, and grease, foul odors can develop in the drains. With our extensive drain cleaning services, odors are a thing of the past. 
  • If you are tired of the gurgling and groaning coming from your pipes, drain cleaning helps. Eliminating the blockages keeps your pipes running smoothly and quietly. 
  • With drain cleaning services, your plumbing components will last longer, and you will not experience as many repair issues. 
  • Our drain cleaning services will also help prevent mold and mildew in your home.

Do Not Make These Drain Cleaning Mistakes

We want you to be aware of the mistakes that can cause your drains to become clogged. We urge you to avoid making the following blunders, so you will not experience problems with your plumbing system. 

  • Do not flush foreign objects or send them down the drain. Food, toys, sanitary napkins, grease, and paper towels can clog pipes. Remember your plumbing pipes are only three inches in diameter. 
  • Do not ignore your garbage disposal. Sending the wrong items down the garbage disposal can spell disaster for your plumbing system. Make sure to clean out the garbage disposal regularly.
  • Be careful when using drain cleaners. Chemical drain cleaners can cause problems in your drain pipes. These chemical concoctions can also be dangerous to you. 
  • When fixing pipes, do not join two different types of metals. Corrosion is likely to occur when you join different metals.
